Ideal soils, sunlight, and rain—to my eye, the vineyard was a treasure.”

Lot 6

9-liter etched Dr. Crane Estate
Cabernet Sauvignon

This wine pays tribute to a viticultural pioneer of Napa Valley, Dr. George Belden Crane. Dr. Crane began planting vineyard in St Helena in 1859 and made many contributions to the wine industry during his time. He was a founding member in the first Viticultural Society in St. Helena and was instrumental in educating and promoting growers in techniques to improve wine quality.

He selected his land for grape growing based on soils he felt were ideal for his endeavor. We believe he was right! These well drained gravelly soils yield grapes with intense character and sense of place. The resulting wines are aromatic complex, balanced and unique.

“This wine is rich, full, complete, with beautiful sweet fruit, ripe tannin and multi-layered mouthfeel. This is a terrific wine to drink over the next 15 years.” — Robert Parker, Jr.

Oakville Winegrowers

Oakville Winegrowers

In the very heart of the Napa Valley lies the town of Oakville. Once a steam train stop in the late 1800s, Oakville owes its name to the dense groves of native oak which once blanketed the area. One hundred years later, the Oakville name is synonymous with excellence in winemaking. A unique combination of soil, topography and climate join together here, creating an environment that makes Oakville a viticultural treasure. But the proof of Oakville’s status as a world-class grape-growing region is the number of great Napa Valley wineries that have planted their vineyards here. While mother nature has provided the key ingredients, a group of Vintners and Growers who are dedicated to crafting the highest quality of wine from the Oakville soil have emerged.
